Nokia announced the successor to the N800 Internet Tablet last week. Dubbed the N810, it features a sliding keyboard, smaller form factor, a slightly faster processor, built-in GPS, a better camera and better codec support. The Opera web browser has been replaced with a Mozilla-based browser and Flash performance seems to be significantly enhanced. The upgraded operating system, Internet Tablet OS2008, will be available for the N800, as well. Hopefully the improved Flash performance will translate to the N800 also. Since all third-party applications will need to be modified for the new OS, I need to resist the temptation to upgrade until my favorite applications are ported. The
beauty of the new interface design will make that a difficult task indeed.

As you can see, I have changed the design once again. I’m quite pleased with the header image. I’m not much of an artist, but I think it turned out rather well. Kudos go to the GIMP and it’s effects plug-ins. Hopefully I will be sticking with this look for a while, although it may undergo some minor revisions as I am not quite satisfied with the corners in the current design. I don’t want rounded corners, but the plain square corners are not doing it for me. I’ll figure something out, I’m sure.
